A new partnership between the Fisher Brothers, Witkoff and New Valley - the developers behind 111 Murray Street (opens in new tab) - and BlueStar Jets (opens in new tab) is set to give a whole new meaning to the word 'luxury'. The development, a flared glass tower in New York's Tribeca planned to house over 150 residential units, has carved a rather unique deal with the on-demand private jet charter provider, and come 2018, the residents of 111 Murray Street will be able to receive exclusive access to private jets, helicopters, car service and hotels around the globe. 

A specially designed SkyCard available to tenants, 'will entitle them to a certain number of hours on any of BlueStar Jets 13,500 private planes or helicopters', explain the developers. This will be easily arranged via the building's concierge service. 

'At the touch of a button, residents of 111 Murray Street will be able to book private travel anywhere in the world,' says Steve Witkoff, chairman and chief executive officer of Witkoff. 'As developers, we're always looking for the next generation of service, amenities and luxury.'

Combining this with the scheme's modern design - the 800-ft tower is designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox (opens in new tab) with residential interiors by David Mann (opens in new tab), luxury amenity interiors by David Rockwell (opens in new tab) and landscaping by Ed Hollander (opens in new tab) - and this surely makes 111 Murray one to watch.
